You can also quickly create a variety of lovely rakhis at home that will be more unique than those found in stores.
Rakhis come in a variety of styles and colours, and Raksha Bandhan is just a few days away. On August 11, communities across the nation will commemorate the brother-sister bonding festival. The rakhis on the market could be pricey, and the less-priced ones might not be of high quality.
However, you can also quickly create a variety of lovely rakhis at home that will be more unique than those found in stores.
Cut a piece of coloured cloth of your choice into the size of the Rakhi’s band. Once finished, take a different piece of fabric and fold it in various ways to create a flower or any other design. To add an additional aspect, you can also add beads to the design and stick the entire thing in the middle of the band.
Place a cardboard piece that is shaped to your linking on any ribbon. The cardboard can be painted and decorated with beads or imitation stones. Additionally, you can write a heartfelt message on the cardboard.
This year, consider making this plant-themed Rakhi to make it more environmentally friendly. You can design a small fabric potli to hold the seeds that are appropriate for the season. Thin jute rope can also be used to make the band. You might also offer your brother a plant container filled with nutrient-rich soil. You can place the seeds in a tiny container and attach it to the Rakhi’s band if you want to make it a bit fancier.
Wrist-band style Rakhi
Put some lovely stones, fake flowers, and other embellishments all around a satin or silk fabric to give it a chic look.
For the unversed, according to Hindu mythology, the festival was inaugurated by Lord Krishna wounding his finger as a result of his sudarshan chakra during the Mahabharat period. Princess Draupadi saw his and ripped a piece of her saree and tied it around to stop the blood from spilling. Lord Krishan promised Draupadi lifetime protection in all circumstances as a result of this kind gesture. As promised, Lord Krishna stood up for Draupadi when the Kauravas attempted to destroy her dignity.
